Re: [EP-tech] IP Based access on restricted documents

Hi Raja,

Yes, there should be settings for this in your archive's cfg/cfg.d/security.pl.  Be careful to make sure you the function to lookup the IP addess looks like:

my $ip = $eprint->repository->remote_ip();

As the older way of doing this breaks in recent versions of Apache and can make documents publicly accessible you would not otherwise intend to be.

Dear Team,

Is it possible to allow restricted document access from the institution's IP?

For example, any request is coming from Institution IP ranges shall we allow them to access the protected content without authentication?

I just try to configure the file which available  ( https://wiki.eprints.org/w/EPrints_User_Group_2015-01-13) at /opt/eprints3/archives/xxx/cfg/cfg.d/security.pl. But no luck.

Could anyone help me out?
